Program Overview

The Masters of Arts in Holocaust and Genocide Studies is a significant response to teaching mandates and the demand for informed global policymakers and scholars knowledgeable about genocide in comparative perspective. To meet these demands it:

  • Offers 19 interdisciplinary courses taught by dedicated faculty in mentoring roles;
  • Offers, pending final agreement, a unique international dual master degree track with the United Kingdom’s University of Leicester School of Law’s human rights program (MA/LLM). Like Kean, the University of Leicester is recognized for its social diversity and, just an hour outside of London, takes advantage of international political, economic, and cultural organizations;
  • Develops skills for independent research and pedagogical innovation;
  • Prepares graduates for teaching – including the university’s courses, The Holocaust, Genocide, and Modern Humanity – and for promising careers as global and social entrepreneurs, nonprofit policymakers, public affairs writers and journalists, human rights advocates, and as leaders in religion, government, and global corporations.
